REPORT: A PARTY OF CHARACTERS


officially, Pictoplasma is a five day character design conference-slash-festival, but anyone who has attended Pictoplasma knows better.
 
in truth, Pictoplasma is an insane weeklong party that attracts talented artists, creative professionals and anyone who wants to be one to get down and funky with some of the most imaginative and inspired people from all over the world.
 
PLATOON KUNSTHALLE Berlin served as a central venue for five days of awesome! it started with the hijacking of our showcases. our windows were taken over by Yeka Haski’s bubble gum plush love piece and Ori Toor’s hypnotic video projection. then came the opening party, we don’t remember much but what we do was legendary.
 
the next day we had the Paper Jam workshop where tons of people created characters and made animation shorts from pieces of paper. by night there was the kickoff for the Cut and Paste Characterized tour. the following day we hosted the Monster Knitting Session where Anna Hrachovec and her many minions knitted a fantastic army of characters.
 
think that was all?
 
NOPE.
 
there’s more.
 
we experienced David Kame and Lala Vox's Sound Creature Drawing session where they worked with people to develop and create characters from sound (you had to be there). the last and final day we had a workshop where people came and made their own plush toy characters. and Jeff Soto and Maxx242 unveiled the bomb mural they did on our wall
 
oh man. what an epic week.
 
our walls were literally alive and on monday were completely covered in chalk characters.
 
it’s hard to believe Pictoplasma is over, but at least there’s always next year.
